Slimer! the animation series was added to The Real Ghostbusters in Season 4 and was renamed "Slimer! and The Real Ghostbusters. It was reformatted in 1988, to give the show a more kid-friendly atmosphere.

A comic series was produced as well.

The Slimer! cartoons were centered around Slimer and his adventures with his friends. In this cartoon the ghostbuster act as support cast for a plot. Many characters were introduced for the series including animals and a arch-nemesis for slimer called Professor Dweeb. Many of the shows had nothing to do with the ghostbusters at all. The show also gave a new outlet for the Junior Ghostbusters to show up on.
